Jeff Kemp is a long-time friend, former quarterback, and teammate with the Seattle Seahawks. Many of the stories Jeff writes about I witnessed and remember vividly! Some painful, others joyful, but all of them instructive and profitable if you can face the blitz!

"Jeff Kemp was a great quarterback and a wonderful student. He was as prepared as any quarterback I have coached to handle the blitz as well as other difficult situations on the field. Now he has taken the lessons he learned on the field and applied them to life. This book is a must-read for all of us. Tests and trials are a part of the human condition; no one is immune to the challenges of facing adversity. My hope is that, by reading this book, we all may be better equipped to deal with tough situations and emerge stronger and wiser from the experience.”

Former NFL quarterback Jeff Kemp knows well that blitzes can knock you flat on your back–but if you’re prepared, you can beat the blitz for a huge play. In Facing the Blitz, Kemp transforms this on-field knowledge into real-life wisdom, teaching you how to beat the blitzes in your life and turn them into victories.
Jeff is a man of deep faith, love, and leadership. I have tremendous admiration for Jeff and his approach to living a complete and healthy life. He’s as prepared to face the blitz as well as anyone I know–and I’m not talking about just when he was an NFL quarterback. Read, learn, and apply. Valuable lessons for life’s greatest challenges.

Facing the Blitz is not for spectators. It’s for any of us on the field of reality, in the game of life. We want purpose from our pain, gain from our loss, and miracles from our mess. We want to face reality, grow relationships, and win as a team. Jesus told us we’d face troubles, and He showed us the way. This book shines the light on the way of hope and growth, and will make a positive impact on other people.
